Defendant Convicted of Murder, Attempted Murder, Gun Charges
DATE: February 6, 2019
CASE: David Eggman (Case #18FE000227)
PROSECUTOR: Deputy District Attorney Shelly McGill, Homicide Unit
David Eggman was convicted by a jury of the second-degree murder of Angelo Reyes, attempted murder, assault with a semi-automatic firearm, discharging a firearm at an occupied vehicle and being a felon in possession of a firearm. The jury also found true allegations that Eggman personally used a firearm causing great bodily injury or death.
On December 16, 2017, Angelo Reyes went to a convenience store and ran into people he knew. A verbal confrontation ensued and the other party called David Eggman and others to the scene for reinforcement. Eggman punched Reyes, who then left and later went to a house where Eggman had gone. After another verbal confrontation, Eggman produced a gun and started shooting. Reyes was shot and killed. Reyes’ brother was struck, but he survived.
An allegation that Eggman suffered a prior strike conviction for voluntary manslaughter will be determined at the sentencing hearing.
Eggman faces a maximum sentence of approximately 85 years to life in prison. Sentencing is set for April 5, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. in Department 62 before the Honorable Michael Savage.
